I had a message from Terry Redmond of the Northfield Past facebook group earlier today, pointing me in the direction of a set of images from an urban explorer
The photographer has managed to go inside the abandoned and derelict Northfield Manor House and take an amazing set of pictures!

The house, former home of George and Elizabeth Cadbury, was donated to the University of Birmingham after Dame Cadbury’s death. It was used as a student residence, with newer halls being attached later, until 2007. It was then put up for sale by the university and has sat empty since.
We still have no new news on plans for the manor – the building has apparently been sold for development, subject to planning permission. There are rumours about the developer and their plans, but we’re still waiting to see what is submitted for planning permission.
